Garden history

Purley Beeches is a unique collection of trees and shrubs that was initially laid out by Mr Eric Frank Wettern.  The garden was conveyed to the Corporation in 1965 by way of a Gift to Trustees for the benefit of the public.  

As one of the Trustees Mr Wettern was able to maintain a keen interest in the gardens that he had started to lay out in 1919.   The gardens are made up of a number of small gardens including the Delphinium Border and the Rose Trellis Garden which was built in 1967.  

A footpath leads from Wettern Tree Garden to the adjacent park Purley Beeches which contains many large Beech trees.
